3D4N Phuket Itinerary – First Timers (Budget Trip)

Just  1 1/2 hours away from Kuala Lumpur, Phuket offers the best 4 days trip for budget travellers like us. Phuket is one of the most beautiful we visited – the beautiful sandy beaches, fantastic landscapes and amazing Thai food. Here is our 4 days 3 nights itinerary.

Day 1

8.00am – Landed and took bus to get to Patong beach. Journey is about 1 1/2 hours from airport. We stayed in @White Patong Hotel, just 10 mins walk from the beach. Nice hotel with not-so friendly staffs 👎🏼👎🏼. 

10.00am – We had breakfast at this road-side stall. That old lady was selling the tastiest and cheapest Thai-style breakfast. Meanwhile, we were surveying for Day 2 & 3 island hopping packages. 

1.00pmBig Buddha. The Big Buddha is Thailand’s third-tallest statue at 148 feet tall and 83.5 feet wide. Made of concrete and covered with Burmese white marble, the Buddha depicts Guatama in a sitting position.
Opening hours: 7:00 am to 5:00 pm daily
Admission: FREE but donations appreciated

Sunset view from Promthep Cape view point

5.00pm Promthep Cape. DON’T MISS! If you are in Phuket, make sure visit Promthep Cape and you will never regret, especially sunset. Make sure get there an hour before sunset as it gets crowded. We trek down to mid point of Promthep to get better shot. Check out more pictures on our Instagram.

8.00pm – Dinner at Indy night market. Honestly, it wasn’t as great as we read online. Hipster-style place. Foods were average and price is slightly on the expensive side.

10.00pm – Back to Patong beach area. Walking around along Patong street. 

Day 2 Phi Phi Island Tour

9.00am – Man Ton Island for snorkelling and swimming from the boat. 

10.00am – Sightseeing at Pileh Lagoon, Maya Bay and Viking Cave (nothing to shout-about).

5.00pm – Back to Pier Phuket. 
7.00pm – Reached back to hotel, it was a tiring trip.
